Ok my cats are spoiled. They have a 9 foot scratching post, a giant litter box
they can stretch out in and two good looking owners. What more could they want. Yes a filtered watering dish
. (I know the joke; they lick their butts, do they have a poop filtering machine, ha ha).
We got an aqua cube, the 40 oz version from walmart for about $20.00 (USD) last year. It works ok, doesnt hold much water and the filters are expensive at about $1.50 a piece. I don't know how long the filters last because i just took it out instead of buying it. It has to be broken down and cleaned every month. (probably last longer if i put a filter in it.)
Anyways as I wrote this instructable the pump crapped out on me because it got gummed up with debris.
You will need:
A big watering dish. Don't get one of those tiny watering dishes for a little sissy lap animal, you want something for a big tiger. An American Tiger!. (3 bucks)
An aquarium filter. I have an aqua tech
power filter i found with a fish tank on trash day. (they are $10 at walmart)
Water. Not that wimpy water that comes in a bottle but good ol TAP water. (free with my rent)
